It’s a must win situation for Kings XI Punjab in their remaining two matches of the ongoing VIVO IPL 10. If they win and Sunriresrs Hyderabad lose to Gujrat Lions Punjab can make it to the playoffs. If Hyderabad wins also they will have a chance but RPS should face defeats in their remaining matches.
For that to happen they must maintain their present net run rate which is much better than that of Rising Pune Supergaint.
And tonight they are certainly going to face a tough test against Mumbai Indians at Wankhede stadium, who are trying to finish top two.
For Kings XI Hashim Amla and David Miller will not be available as they had to join the South Africa team preparatory camp. That means Darren Sammy might get his first opportunity today.
Mumbai can still have the services of Lasit Malinga who got permission to go ahead.
Kings bowlers did a fantastic job against KKR the other day and Maxwell will expect the same happening tonight. Punjab should go all out as this is the last chance for them.
In yesterday’s match Shreyas Iyer played a brilliant innings to help his side Delhi Daredevils beat Gujarat Lions in a thriller at Kanpur. Gujrat Lions will now take on Sunrisers Hyderabad at the same venue, in a match which incidentally is going to be last league battle for both the sides.
